Golf mk6 r apr stage 2+

I've just got my car back from basically getting APR stage 2+.
The power gains are great and I only have one concern,has anyone experienced slight vibrations from around the downpipe when accelerating in the lower range of gears 3,4,5 etc and applying power in low rev

If it's an un resonated down pipe, you may get vibration resonance.

Is the dp rubbing on the heat shield underneath. I know mine was touching upon installation so I bent the sheild a bit and no more touching.

Running stage 2+

Initially was awesome didnt notice anything.
I have a straight downpipe no resonator/cat.
Noticed vibrations directly under shifter so checked under the car and noticed from all the vibrations that my bolts that hold up the middle section of the driveshaft started to come loose allowing enough play to hid my midpipe section once in a blue. Check under the car regularly. Yo might start getting sounds going to stage 2 with the mods and or work performed. Double check everything done to the car too
